Re: Fraochaidh From Duror

Thanks for the assurance that the Duror approach is good. I had previously started at Ballachullish and twice from Glen Creran, so this was a welcome alternative. Worth noting that there is a parking space just short of the first house past the start of the walk which is the straight tarmac heading ...

Re: Fraochaidh From Duror

Good route option. Could you give a grid reference guess for the start of the path. Did you use the bridge at 018 538?

Lost; Black Karrimor cycle pannier

Left on verge parking on the A887 Glen Moriston road opposite the estate track end at Bhlaraidh at 2pm on 2 April 2018. Contents include pump, tools, flask and mitt. Reported to police and estate keeper. I revisited the location at 9am on 3rd April.
The pannier has a red top.

Re: Auchnafree Hill

Enjoyed your company too Alec. The Weasel Master is Al Deering and it was a second set of Donalds he had completed . I thought you had said a second set of Grahams,which was quite newsworthy as my knowledge was that myself and Ken Whyte were the only double Graham completers. I hope your flag photos...

Re: Corserine and Pals

Like you I followed the signs that take you to the broken fence and the horrendous ground ahead. That was no mistake, that is where the signs directed. I also knew that the path was to the right, but getting there was very hard in all that long grass. I will be speaking to the MCof S, because there ...

Re: Glen Galmadale a Spectacular but Hard horseshoe round

The trees to the left of the deep bracken is a better alternative for the start of Beinn na Cille.

No Grief on Chleibh

Beinn a’ Chleibh was the hill for my first and second completions. The first was after an ascent of Ben Lui where we soloed up a good snow gully in thick mist, somewhere to the right of Central Gully. At the summit, there was a clearing of the mist and we could see the hill to the west which had rem...

Knoydart notes

17 April; The high pressure weather system in mid April was the signal to get the tent out for those hills which are too far away for a day outing. Away on the Thursday evening, I arrived at the big parking area next to the masts above Loch Quoich just before dark. Quoich bedtime.JPG 18 April; Next ...

Re: The walk that never really got started

Impressive feat of determination. With rain and wind of that ferocity, I would not have been out for long. You did well to get something out of the circumstances. Burn crossings can be a major problem after heavy rain. I came down Foinaven once amongst surging water and had to think hard to avoid be...

Re: Family fun in the Fannaichs and Fisherfields

Good story again. A fine way up the slabs, and wise to avoid the boulder field above which goes on for a long way. Very brave camping now with the midgies about. Amazing how the wind drops at the tent after a breezy day on the hill.
